Golden chain tree

I have a golden chain tree which has leaves that are turning yellow. Please see attached pictures. What could be the problem? Thank you, Terry

It looks like normal leaf senescence--the aging leaf of the deciduous tree is preparing to drop. This is a common occurrence. If you noticed this in June or July, it would point to a nutrient deficiency or uneven watering.
